Network Connection Always Shows Access Denied

If you are always getting Access Denied errors when trying to connect to a XP computer,
and you know you have the correct user names and passwords on the computer,
the solution may be a simple registry edit.

  1. Start Regedit
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM / CurrentControlSet / Control / Lsa
  3. Change the value of a key called "restrictanonymous" to 0 instead of 1
  4. Don't change "restrictanonymoussam" value.
  5. Reboot

Warning: mysqli::mysqli(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)


Open up the PHP Config File Config.php (File name can vary) where the MySQL DB connection details are entered.
Change the machine source name, user name and password as per the current system config.
If still not fixing, go to the PHP line causing the issue and echo the connection details, and see if correct values are there.

I set up a hotmail account and am trying to link it to my Outlook XP Professional application. When I hit send/receive, I get error 0x800CCC33 - Access to account denied; verify that your username & password is correct. I have verified that the information is correct. What is wrong?


I did find out that it is linked to the profile. I haven't deleted my profile yet because I haven't backed it up. However, other users on the same computer can send just fine. If you can, delete your windows profile and try it again. A re-install does not solve the problem because there is still profile information that isn't deleted when Outlook 2007 is uninstalled. Let me know if this helps and I am going to see if there is another solution so I don't have to delete my profile.
